Product Overview

This book is the definitive guide to Victorian poetry, which its author approaches in the light of modern critical concerns and contemporary contexts.
  • Valentine Cunningham exhibits encyclopedic knowledge of the poetry produced in this period and offers dazzling close readings of a number of well-known poems
  • Draws on the work of major Victorian poets and their works as well as many of the less well-known poets and poems
  • Reads poems and poets in the light of both Victorian and modern critical concerns
  • Places poetry in its personal, aesthetic, historical, and ideological context
  • Organized in terms of the Victorian anxieties of self, body, and melancholy
  • Argues that rhyming/repetition is the major formal feature of Victorian poetry
  • Highlights the Victorian obsession with small subjects in small poems
  • Shows how Victorian poetry attempts to engage with the modern subject and how its modernity segues into modernism and postmodernism
